FAN ART: Poor SPIDER-MAN, Excluded From The Marvel Cinematic Universe

FAN ART: Poor SPIDER-MAN, Excluded From The Marvel Cinematic Universe

"Poor Spidey" is a piece of fan-art created by Mauricio Abril. It captures the sad state of affairs in which Sony's Spider-Man can't be included in the Marvel cinematic universe. Come see Spidey dragged away as he watches The Avengers have all the fun.

"I suppose this is what happens when you cross fan art with social commentary. I came up with the idea for this gag illustration after watching “The Amazing Spiderman 2″ on opening weekend, but only just now got around to finishing it. It pretty much summarizes how I felt about the new franchise, the larger Marvel cinematic universe and the realities of binding contracts." - Mauricio Abril

We’ve always known that Spider-Man’s most important battle has been within himself: the struggle between the ordinary obligations of Peter Parker and the extraordinary responsibilities of Spider-Man. But in The Amazing Spider-Man 2, Peter Parker finds that a greater conflict lies ahead. It’s great to be Spider-Man (Andrew Garfield). For Peter Parker, there’s no feeling quite like swinging between skyscrapers, embracing being the hero, and spending time with Gwen (Emma Stone). But being Spider-Man comes at a price: only Spider-Man can protect his fellow New Yorkers from the formidable villains that threaten the city. With the emergence of Electro (Jamie Foxx), Peter must confront a foe far more powerful than he. And as his old friend, Harry Osborn (Dane DeHaan), returns, Peter comes to realize that all of his enemies have one thing in common: OsCorp...

The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will be directed by Marc Webb from a script written by Alex Kurtzman, Roberto Orci, Jeff Pinkner and James Vanderbilt. The film will star Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker/Spider-Man, Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy, Sally Field as Aunt May, Shailene Woodley as Mary Jane Watson, Paul Giamatti as Rhino, Jamie Foxx is Electro and Chris Cooper as Norman Osborn. The Amazing Spider-Man sequel will swing into theaters May 2, 2014.

Xandera - 5/21/2014, 9:51 AM
Hahaha! Seriously though... Spidey needs to go home to Marvel.
EpitomeofAwesome - 5/21/2014, 9:52 AM

Hhahahaa! Ha... ha.. -goes to cry in a corner-
yonny616 - 5/21/2014, 9:54 AM
Spidey would really work in the MCU.
Doopie - 5/21/2014, 9:56 AM
JoeMomma29 - 5/21/2014, 9:56 AM
Yeah Sony is going to hold on Spidey for many many years.
YeezusWept - 5/21/2014, 9:56 AM
Next he should make a GOTG one with Galactus, Silver Surfer, and Annihilus watching from afar.
Whiteandgold - 5/21/2014, 9:56 AM
No way is spiderman going back to Marvel.
marvel72 - 5/21/2014, 10:02 AM
sony just let him play with marvel studios.
thebearjew - 5/21/2014, 10:03 AM
poor spiderman
most iconic marvel character and cant join his cohorts :(
thebearjew - 5/21/2014, 10:03 AM
i wonder how much sony would want for spidey maybe someone should start a money drive to buy back spidey
CaptainObvious - 5/21/2014, 10:04 AM
Poor Spidey. What did you do to deserve Sony?
Meteor - 5/21/2014, 10:04 AM
I have a question: if Marvel Studios is using Spiderman in a Avengers Studios with knowing they will go on a trial, could they afford to do it (and when I say "afford" it's like the trial represents nothing them)
Platinum - 5/21/2014, 10:06 AM
Really hoping these movies keep making less. Shit franchise needs to be rebooted and forgotten.
Jollem - 5/21/2014, 10:07 AM
the mcu needs spidey. spidey don't need the mcu
InfiniteMonkey - 5/21/2014, 10:07 AM
Its a pity Spiderman can't join.
It would totally infuse loads of new life into the franchise and the team-ups would be insane. Pity.
Klone - 5/21/2014, 10:08 AM

No the MCU doesn't need him to succeed... [frick] sake we know a sycophantic DC zealot like yourself hates Marvel but at least have your lame flame baiting attempts make sense.

That's my expression every time somebody tells me I've "had enough to drink".

"Enough"? What does that even mean?
QuestiontheAnswer - 5/21/2014, 10:11 AM
Spidey's villains were stronger than the Chitauri.
cipher - 5/21/2014, 10:13 AM
Doop- Hahahahahaha.
ManCalledSting - 5/21/2014, 10:13 AM
I'm glad Sony has Spidey, and Fox has FF and Xmen. Also, the image is kinda lame.
DeusExSponge - 5/21/2014, 10:15 AM
Sony is in a financial crisis, giving up Spiderman would only help them in the short run. Spiderman might not be doing as good as he should domestically, but only a global scale it's doing pretty darn well right now. All the Spiderman movies combined grossed a whooping total of $4 billion (as of now), Sony would have to be pretty darn stupid to give away a cash cow like Spiderman.
ManCalledSting - 5/21/2014, 10:15 AM
Klone: I don't think he said they need him to succeed. The new Spidey movie proves he can be a success, and have good movies with Sony.
Platinum - 5/21/2014, 10:16 AM

Spider-Man's movies keep making less and less, while the MCU's revenue keeps going up with each phase. So, who needs who again?
charlie2094 - 5/21/2014, 10:17 AM
Lol, awesome stuff!

Be great to see happen, not as impossible as some make out...heck, TASM2 needs to make $755 just to hit profit...
ManCalledSting - 5/21/2014, 10:21 AM
How is $755 million the number they need to makes a profit?
cipher - 5/21/2014, 10:22 AM
adam- You think you can direct me to some ice molds for a reasonable price? Many thanks, and a piss-off-to-spam-land to you.
BatzFTWfan - 5/21/2014, 10:22 AM
Poor Spidey, if he doesnt return nowadays thanks to the annoying reboot, he appear in Phase 4 hopefully.
Jollem - 5/21/2014, 10:22 AM
charlie2094 - 5/21/2014, 10:23 AM

Because they spent way too much on it. $200-$255 on the budget, $180-$190 on the marketing...Deadline is the one that reported it, they can be trusted.
MightOfMagneto - 5/21/2014, 10:23 AM
Nope! Spidey is fine without the MCU.
Indy - 5/21/2014, 10:26 AM

ManCalledSting - 5/21/2014, 10:27 AM
Charlie: I guess math wasn't your strong suit. Even if you use both of the high end numbers for the budget, they still have made almost 2 million in profit.
charlie2094 - 5/21/2014, 10:29 AM

They only get about 60% of the money a film makes, rest goes to theaters.

Again, Deadline said $755, not me.
GA15 - 5/21/2014, 10:30 AM
poor spidey he he! no fun for you.
Platinum - 5/21/2014, 10:30 AM
Sony also made an in-house projection of 1 billion for this movie. So they're obviously [frick]ing up.
marvel72 - 5/21/2014, 10:31 AM
@ jollem

marvel studios really does need spidey? they've had two billion movies without him,has spidey? spidey/sony needs marvel studios more.
Nick56 - 5/21/2014, 10:33 AM
I really don't want Spidey in the Avengers. I never liked how every Marvel character in the comics at some point becomes part of the avengers, its pointless
